Tempe - Sally Bigelow Atsumi (Grams) passed away on February 27, 2018. She was 77. Born September 17, 1940 in Boston, MA, she was preceded in death by her mother Ella, father Frank, sister Margaret, and husband of 47 years, Taki.

Unexpected and all too soon, Grams left behind her deeply grateful family: Deedee Atsumi Sarno (husband James, son Samuel and daughter Abigail), Takase Andrew Atsumi (wife Amy, and sons Aaron and Asher), and Nancy Atsumi (husband Micah, daughter Emiko and son Kazuhiro).

And, then there are her friends. Cultivated by her warm, caring personality, Grams had a wealth of friendships that knew no limits. Unique in her approach to express her affection, when Grams befriended you - you couldn't escape the thoughtful, personal approach she took to express her sincerity in knowing you.

A public Memorial and Celebration of Life will be held this Saturday, August 11 at 11AM at First United Methodist Church of Tempe, 215 East University Drive, Tempe, AZ.

Grams was a proud, founding member of "Stitch In Time," a charity organization at First United Methodist Church of Tempe, which the family has designated for memorial contributions.
